For nEver Mine, The Mate Mistake Book One by Odessa Hywell

Author Odessa Hywell impressed Jacquie with their first omegaverse offering For nEver Mine. It also comes with a side of their trademark brotherly love.

From the blurb:

How far would you go to protect your brother?

When Shiloh, a young alpha, realizes his omega brother is being mistreated by the brutal pack he was sent to help, he refuses to stand idly by while Riley suffers. In order to break the pack bond forced upon Riley and escape Alpha Gearhart, Shiloh does the unthinkable.

He mates with his big brother.

As they flee to safety and sanctuary, Shiloh and Riley are unable to deny the pull of the intense new bond between them. But as they struggle to adapt to the change in their dynamic, the threat of Alpha Gearhart’s retaliation looms over them.

Can Shiloh protect his omega mate? Or will the brothers be forced to choose between loyalty and survival by a ruthless alpha who will stop at nothing to reclaim Riley?

Jacquie's Review:

The concept for For nEver Mine is something unique to me. Omegaverse (without mpreg) but also 'cest. The whole thing just worked for me. It kept my attention throughout and it was some of the hottest omegaverse I've read in a while.

I'm a fan of Hywell's writing and knew I was in for a lot of steamy times sprinkled with sweetness and this delivered that in spades.

Shiloh and Riley were easy to love characters and their brotherly bond soon translated to smoking hot chemistry - really, these guys fought it, but when they gave in, wow!

It's not all sunshine and rainbows, they have the other alpha to deal with and not everyone gets it. They have to be accepted because a mate bond comes before all other things, but not everyone is comfortable with the brothers turned mates.

Hopefully this won't be the only story in this series as there is at least 1 more couple I would love to see together.

Janet's Review:

For nEver Mine is only the second book I’ve read from this author and I seriously don’t know why I haven’t read more!! Seriously a fantastic read! Shiloh and Riley are really sweet together. They always shared a bond of sorts throughout their childhood, but it ratchets up when they mate in order to save Riley from a rogue alpha. Shiloh will do anything to protect his big brother and mate. The steam is hot and spicy. The writing was addictive, the pacing was addictive. Overall, a delicious read!
